Why I can't get some kind of understanding from people?

I am gamer girl for instance.
I was never interested in social network apps, and I don't have any. Literally any. And I will never have any of those. I do not like taking pictures of myself and posting them everywhere. I also do not like to share any from my album with anyone, so I often say that I do not have any pictures of myself. I really value my privacy. I don't have anything against people who love doing so, of course. That's what modern society is all about. But I'm not. So I always have hard time explaining it all to people. I rarely even use phone. If you know me in real life, good for you... You can see all you wanna see right there...
I'm not sure what's the problem to believe in this. I don't lack self esteem or confidence, I just don't like doing so. I know it wouldn't kill me, but why would I do something I'm not comfortable with or don't enjoy doing, or dislike doing?

I would say your refusal to follow what others appear to think you must, shows you have the self-esteem and confidence they lack.

Over 2 years later now, does all of this (thoughtful) post still hold true for you or has it changed in some parts? 🤔

@funfan I just see this answer now lol
Well, I try to play less games, Im succeeding. Social media as IG, Snapchat and Facebook are still huge NO, and for pics, whoever asks for one won't get it, even my own mother lol but whatever I share is because I wanted to 😊

a lot of "modern society" and social media

As0if · 22-25, F
@Dshhh Well its all about social media nowadays anyways 🤔

@As0if yes but you cant eat virtual food
online love? its just fantasy
i what popular was right we would all be smoking crack
I've yet to understand why social networking matters

this sounds cool to me, nothing hard to understand. i don't share private pics and SW is the only "social" medium i touch - and only cos it is pretty anti-social!

i am happy for other people to do it, i am too busy.

and i don't even play games!

so stick with what you like 🙂
As0if · 22-25, F
@Yulianna I understand and agree! You are cool. 😍💓
Yulianna · 22-25, F
@As0if 😃 everybody's cool sometimes... i just like to do things my own way!

Are you sure you're not describing me (except for the gamer girl part)? I swear I'm the same way, but people just push and push for stuff all the time. You hang strong, ok? 🤗

@As0if ROCK!! You're not alone in this! Ha! 🥰😎🤗
As0if · 22-25, F
@Ksmile14 I'm glad! 😘😍🥰😊

I'm afraid the Internet and social-media has brought up a curious herd mentality in which many of those whose own circles always do X, Y and Z, assume "everyone" does.

You see very similar in the rhubarb written by "lifestyle" columnists in the Sunday supplements, telling we readers that, "Now we all..." shop on-line, buy only this brand of clothes or wines, listen only to that approved music genre, etc.

I call them The Great Family We-All; and the sort of people you complain of, are like that.
As0if · 22-25, F
@ArishMell I understand. I guess it's hard for some people to accept the fact that there are different people with different preferences... :/
ArishMell · 70-79, M
@As0if Oh, indeed it is!

@DarkHeaven @As0if I'm a gamer girl well. I've lined alone the last 8 years so silence and seclusion i know a but like the poster. Only two here have ever seen me and those are two I trust with my privacy! I'm not sharing pics of me here. I don't need judged or the confidence boost! I create my own confidence.

Just be you. Screw what others wish or want you to be. You are both brilliant as you are.

Shine on!

And remember Nord men cower in fear of a strong and confident women! Thay are no match!

@Elandra77 I’m grateful to have your trust, my dear friend. You matter to me. 🖤
As0if · 22-25, F
@Elandra77 Thank you. I'm glad there are more who share the same thoughts. I understand you completely! Love 💓🥰💓

I mean, that's privacy. We live in a society dominated by exposure. Fuck it, take your space
Moosepantspatty · 31-35, M
@As0if yeah, its frustrating, but that's the way weve evolved. It sucks, but best to take a step back, make your own circle. Forget the rest exist.
As0if · 22-25, F
@Moosepantspatty I thought about the same. I never ask for anything, never... So I expect the same from the other side. If I was pushy, then please, you have all the right to be pushy as well. 😁
Moosepantspatty · 31-35, M
@As0if exactly! Golden rule. If they don't respect your boundaries they ain't your friend.
Ian123 · 61-69, M
Live your own life and don’t worry about other people. If they don’t understand that’s their problem. 🤗
As0if · 22-25, F
@Ian123 I'm just getting annoyed by the amount of nonunderstanding :c
Ian123 · 61-69, M
@As0if The problem is that people nowadays grow up in a world dominated by social media 😀 Just be you
As0if · 22-25, F
@Ian123 Yes, I have those friends. When we go out they are on phone constantly and I'm just staring at them like 😳 and waiting for them to stop. 😂
